Who is the judge of it being a better book? You?
Absolutely. When it comes to the moral caliber of books like Mein Kampf and Deepak's books which have given hope to many millions of people, I think its obvious where quality resides.

As for historical/political/literary significance, well, I suppose Mein Kampf.

I judge, but I don't attack and judge, as I see many people doing.

Absolutely.
Why?

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Ah, so are "qualifications" a matter of opinion or belief or something equally subjective?

I seem to remember am aphorism from somewhere, something like, "The person who is qualified to judge is the person of true wisdom, therefore he does no judge."
"Look forward; yesterday was a lesson, if you did not learn from it you wasted it."

LOL! And I suppose you will be the first to step forward to be the judge of who is qualified?
